The forum I have been waiting for

Unread postby Philthebrewer » Tue Apr 01, 2014 4:13 pm

Fellow brewers, I would like to congratulate Niels for setting up this forum. I have been suggesting to both Speidel and to Brad Smith at Beersmith that they do something special for the Braumeister users as we are a rather special type. The other Braumeister users I know are specialist doctors and engineers and I see that the profiles here are mainly other analytical types, so I finally feel at home.

I have been brewing with the Braumeister 20l for around 5 years (say 50 brews) and still have many questions. The range of permutations possible in the mashing, sparging and starting volume areas are enough to keep me going for years.

What I have been searching for is mashing profiles. My simple question is "what mashing profile changes produce what output changes?". On the Beersmith forum (same profile name) I have posted my own trial and error light, medium and heavy 4 step profiles and I think that I can see the difference they produce. But what I really need is thousands of outcomes from hundreds of users for 20 different styles.

I would like to see a main section or at least a subsection devoted to multi step mashing, as this is what the Braumeister excels at. I see the mash profile as independent of the recipe and want to build a library of profiles which one day could even be a "sticky".

This is my, this is my dream!

Hi Phillip, welcome to the forum. It is great to have a dedicated Braumeister forum, a big "well done" to Niels, it will become a great resource over time.
It has been mentioned on here previously regarding the need for a dedicated software brewing program for the BM. At brad Smiths request I have sent my brewing details in Beersmith to him so I assume he is collecting and collating information from many BM brewers and will come up with a Braumeister add on in due time.
I like your idea of providing accurate mash results from differing schedules and time permitting later today, I will check your input to date on the Beersmith forum.

The worst thing that can happen if I die is that my wife will sell all my brewing equipment for what I told her I paid for it

Welcome to the forum mate.

Your post on the Brewsmith forum gave me the basis for my current Equipment Profile. Although it's been tweaked a bit since by information gleaned here, mostly from Dicko.

Cheers :cheers:

Welcome Philip!

It looks like you are one of the members who is brewing with the BM for the longest time. I suppose this is the thread you are referring to: ... 056.0.html

I'm glad you like the idea of a dedicated Braumeisters forum. I don't like to take any credit as I simply provide the platform while you (fellow members) make it work by posting information.

Hi Philip, welcome indeed, all that experience, our forum just expanded a whole lot!

And a terrific idea by the way, maybe we could start a research section, and then project we can all partake in. Although it would be a bit tricky comparing outcomes between people across the globe..... but still I like the idea!

I agree with Niels that the forum IS then people on it, but Niels does deserve a shoulder pat (as we say) for bringing it online, and the time he is putting into it!

Keep up the good work Niels!
